Marie has supported me and many other pregnant and early postnatal mums through the very difficult period of lockdown. Sharing updates from the government, pre and post natal advice, remote classes and one to one support. She very quickly adapted to the new situation and acted with kindness and compassion for those of us going through the life changing event of childbirth. She has been a pillar of strength, resilience and calm. Marie has kept supporting us all, alongside the other members of the gym, all while looking after her own family. She has always done it will a smile on her face and with genuine care for people. Lockdown and the time since would have been a very different experience for me and many others without the tremendous work of Marie and Studio 41. I can’t thank her enough.
